Cremation Services Can Be Positive
Having positive cremation services in Sun City, AZ doesn’t mean ignoring the sorrow and the loss you’re experiencing after the death of someone you love. What it does mean is remembering why you’re going to miss them and what they’ve left behind, not only with you and your family, but in the lives of all the people they have touched.
Your loved one had an impact on the world. Granted, it may have been small in the big scheme of things, but it was big to everyone with whom they interacted throughout their lives. Focusing on the positive things that your loved one was and did, and the legacy of that impact that is left for you and your family is a great framework for positive cremation services.
Your loved one had attributes that made a positive impact. They may not have been flashy or out there for everyone to see or know what they were doing – which was an extension of who they were – but they changed lives for the better because of these attributes.
They may have been kind and gentle to everyone, always giving everyone the benefit of the doubt and treating everyone with respect. That is a rare attribute, especially in a society that is increasingly filled with rage, getting ticked off about every little thing, and seeking revenge through violence.
Your loved one may have been naturally motivated to service and giving and those attributes shone in every part of their lives. They may have served the neighborhood, mowing an elderly neighbor’s lawn every week, helping people with mechanical problems, or just lending a helping hand when they saw a need.
They may have served in the community, in volunteer capacities at church, with emergency services, in educational organizations, or at nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or hospice. They may have been the first to respond to needs for food, errands, or rides when someone was sick, had a baby, or simply had a need.
Your loved one may have been very loving, not only toward their family, but toward everyone. They may have shown that love in the way they treated everyone with honor and made sure that everyone was included in everything and no one was excluded from anything. They probably made many sacrifices for you and your family to ensure that everyone had what they needed and sometimes to give everyone what they wanted.
All of these kinds of attributes are positive. They can form the basis for the cremation services that you hold for your loved one, both as a testimony of their lives, but also as a witness to the legacy they leave behind.
Legacies are important. Your loved one may not have been fabulously wealthy and left a lot of assets and material things behind. But their character is priceless and the lessons they taught by how they lived their lives are lessons that can be shared, not only with future generations of your family, but also with friends and neighbors who attend the cremations services.
Don’t underestimate the powerful influence your loved one had on others. You can take that and use it to make the cremation services positively focused on the things you’ll miss about them and the things they would want to be passed on from their lives.
